The University Senate consists of University admin, faculty and elected student leaders. Senate is responsible for all issues relating to academic quality, including the granting of degrees, setting program requirements and approving academic regulations. These candidates are running to represent their faculty and all undergrads in an at-large position on Senate to be part of decisions that matter to undergrads, like Fall Reading Break and program requirements.
